Going on hiatus...

Year end is tomorrow and I am a fundraiser....anyone want to make a gift? :)

I am still counting points (though I over-indulged a little last night with some celebratory wine and pizza) and am not "taking off" from that. I will just not be blogging about it for a few days as I wrap up work and some house projects (off on Monday and Tuesday). I am looking forward to Sunday as it is a) the official start of a new week and b) the official start of a new month. I have not done great lately and am looking forward to a fresh week. I do want to give up wine as I am sure it is interfering with weight loss, but will wait until at least then , or possibly Thursday to give it another try. In the meantime, I will at least not get too out of control and stay within points regardless. Will also try to get in a few workouts this weekend as well. I am working on painting the bathroom on Monday and Tuesday so that should count for something :)

My points reset on Monay and I am going to work very hard to follow the guidelines first for all snacks before any "empty" food. I really want to make that a habit.

Don't worry, I have no intentions of "falling off the wagon" and eating everything in sight over the weekend. I am just taking a blogging break to get some stuff done.

Have a great weekend everyone!

My coffee is 2 pts/day (I switched from Large, 2 cream, 1 sugar to Medium, 1 cream, 1 splenda) and will not give it up. I don't even care if it's bad for me. At only 2 pts/glass of wine I don't know why you would need to give it up. My feeling is that I should be able to have my cake and eat it too. That's what I love about WW - you don't HAVE to deny yourself anything unless you want to.

When you have some wine, are you able to stop at 1 glass. This is something I don't have a problem with, but with beer I tend to want 2 or 3. Funny thing is, I enjoy my wine more - maybe I just feel more satisfied drinking 1 glass of that than 3 bottles of beer.

Or are you just worried about alcohols affect on weight loss. I know some people stress about sodium, but if you drink enough water it offsets the affect - I say have your sodium/wine, and water too.

Good luck whatever you decide. Purging yourself of comfort food/drinks is tough.

I'll look forward to reading when you come back! Good luck with your end of FY stuff, and remember, blogging shouldn't be a burden (IMO)... when it becomes such, it's good that you take some time off.

I work with lots of Fundraisers (and used to be one for Planned Giving myself) I hope your end of year Friday had you meeting all your goals!! :-)
